Artfield Fell wind farm is located approximately 9km north of the village of Glenluce in Dumfries and Galloway.
Consisting of 15 1.3MW wind turbines, Artfield Fell became operational in July 2005.
As the name suggests, Artfield Fell is built on a hill and has fine views across to Luce Bay in the south and Stranraer. The wind farm covers an area of approximately 2.5 square kilometres and the nearby farm uses the area for grazing cattle, sheep and horses.
There is also a seven turbine extension (Balmurrie Fell) which was completed in September 2012.
